Keenhouse & go nogo - Take Off - Snippet by go nogo published on 2013/11/11 09:11:53 +0000 go nogo – Things Ain’t Right After a couple of months „Sad“ turned out to be a happy ending in terms of approval for many listeners, go nogo embark on a new journey. Whereas its predecessor had sort of a broken beat element paired with delayed 16th notes on Eric’s guitar, „Things Ain’t Right“ is very downbeat and smoothly build around an acoustic backdrop. Strings and Rhodes make a solemn appeal to the listener and Fred Scholl’s singing is again in line with the hymnal character of „Sad“, but this time in a joyous vein. If „Things Aint Right", well then „Some Things Ain’t Too Right“, meaning „it can’t get any better“ – this simple philosophy is based on experiencing simple pleasures, like visiting friends you haven’t seen for a while. Musically the original version is a cross of Pink Floyd’s languid moments and 90s downbeat excursions from viennese figureheads like Tosca. The Lonely Smoker remodels the central Rhodes chords around an eight and a half minute puffed out Chill House groove that will eventually turn on the sun when it’s dark outside. Mattzid’s go slow version will take you back to the days of Jaffa’s „Elevator“, a classic Chillout-tune of Stereo Deluxe-fame. Just made for the lounge-chair-lovers. In contrast, London-based Evil Zed drops some U.K. – Breakbeat science with his Remix. He twists and turns the vocals after the break into a cut-up scratch orgy and delivers an oldschool spin that you would not expect. Patrick Talmann takes us back to the Deep House. Lush layers in the distance yield a perfect backdrop for Eric’s balearic guitar thrown in. Last but not least, Keenhouse picks the small synth line from the original’s middle section and pitches a quote from Fred to become an arty detail to his string-piano based composition. „Things Ain’t Right“ turns into a track of its own right, Thus we renamed it to „Take Off“.... Fasten your seatbelt!
